environments. but i did come away with the conclusion that it's absolutely vital that parents and staff and student come together around a shared vision of culture. either organically or through the very hard process of mutual dialogue and understanding. and i think the book shows the success that can happen when -- that can occur when that happens and the struggles a school will encounter if it doesn't. and as one example, one of the schools i followed, which struggled quite a bit in its first year, did have this one sort of amazing success on that point. the principal early on in the year introduced the students to the wolf fable, and the fable is there are two wolves inside us that are constantly fighting, and one wolf represents greed and anger and the other wolf represents love and humility. and the moral is that the wolf that wins at the end is the one you feed. and that 'really took on a life of its own at this school and among the kids, and students would tell each other to remember to be the good wolf, or to make sure that the go wolf wins in the end. i think at successful scho
division civil, criminal and thÉrÈse, and grants a natural resource and environment. then make recommendations, which go to the assistance. sometimes there's an internal conflict. the department of justice include the criminal division and those people always want to defend guards and seized their presence. sublimates divisions tends to favor and somebody has to resolve those on assistant to the solicitor general may think the criminal division statutory. prosecution is weak. the solicitor general has to resolve those issues. bob bork connected many not only within the government, but also here presentations by private counsel. it's one of the else's traditions that anyone that he can't come kerry i can be hurt by the solicitor general personally for united states files a brief in the supreme court. but prepared carefully and as sharp questions at these meetings. as he said in the book, he tried to advance the position of the executive branch, not his own fears. i never saw him favors on position and misunderstand. you conflate knowledge, understanding and intellectual integrit
here. we are not simply here to hold their hand. we want a friendly environment for them. this is the kind of place we want them to feel it's open to consider new ideas but my job is to take them and give them some of those new ideas but challenge them to think in new ways they haven't before. >> host: can you predict who would be successful and who wouldn't? >> guest: at first, no because most of the students that we get are going to be successful so that's the good news but the first meeting, know it's impossible to determine who will be successful than others. >> host: what are the downfalls? >> guest: there are lots and lots of distractions here or at any other universities that is currently the biggest downfall which isn't paying attention to what they need to do. so not going to class, not getting assignments done, that is the most important thing in terms of making sure they have the best opportunity to succeed. >> host: what is the most common question students ask? >> guest: what's going to be on the test and that isn't the right question to be asking. what they
and local authorities that meet globally every year and the networking cities around work and environment, transportation, immigration, security, and a number of other issues. i hadn't heard of it two years ago. i doubt too many people other than that the urban specialists in the room have heard of it. but it is a living organization. most people would say i know what you mean the american conference of mayors, sister cities, maybe. but they pale in the context of the actual inner city organizations literally hundreds of them. some regional, some of national, some with global scope that exist. the forty cities working on forty or fifty eight cities working on global environment doing a better job. mayors running the world. city protocol and new organization, barcelona that shares best practicing clare, the counsel of local authority, the climate alliance. achievings in the nations states are lock up. unable to make any real progress. they are actually doing things important things together, and they do it because when you look at cities, the approach to govern mans, the approach to citize
that made this environment possible. >> smith was the director of the whole school, right. for many years he took over after elizabeth irwin died. >> right. [inaudible] a couple years after she died. he was asked if he had communist teachers and he told them it was none of their business. >> that's right. and he was more than i think being a sort of old left sort of new york fellow, she was a new england yankee sort of the high. not necessarily liberal, a more independent yankee. they don't talk about him a lot. angelo spoke about him very fondly because she remembers that when she first came to the school, she came a week before the school opened, to sort of get oriented with the people who were -- who she was staying with and she just remembers him smiling at her and being very courtly and proper which i think was, you know, a good reminded her of the south because it was just amazing to her when she went around to that teachers and she was calling him by their firstname and they were in jeans. she said i think maybe i made a horrible mistake. maybe my mother was right. [laughter] >> did t
been here longer. it's not the kind of environment that the achievers want to go into and stay in and it doesn't make teachers feel valued at all. i got in a little bit of trouble the other night because i was giving a speech in california. and i was lamenting the fact that the teachers don't get paid enough to it i said think about this. i said basketball players. now, why my husband is a former nba player. this is why i got in trouble at home to it i said basketball players get paid $12 million a year for troubling of all -- dribbling around. we should be 12 million to our highly effective teachers in the nation because they are determining the future of our nation. but we have a skewed culture where we don't actually respect and honor teachers for the incredible work that they do. we certainly don't pay them what they are worth. >> in australia they have 200 days of public schools. in china and india is 200 days of public school instruction. in the united states, why do you think in the united states it is only 180 days? which is drastic if you take between china and india i
healthy, but i did it. and i noticed him talking again and again about the environment. and how proud she was of his achievement in cleaning up the aerts and of the water. he said it and he was proud of it publicly, and yet on the tapes you have him grousing about it not once or twice, but constantly, identify and environmentalism with liberals saying that we have made a mistake. we shouldn't do this. and if i ever have a choice between jobs and the environment, i always go with jobs. don't ever forget it and fire people that say they should go for the environment. it is so hard to understand. on the one side but he said publicly in the state of the union address, not once but three times that i listened to, what you would want and you actually expect bill clinton it's not president obama to say. but privately he is grousing. do you see in the 50's a man that is at war with himself over what he believes? >> i can see that. one of the most interesting things following this thread of mixing and civil rights, i mentioned the trip to africa and 67, and that's where we met martin luther king,
in that environment. and became a recommendation not only to add forces, but to change strategies. and i think that the idea of adding forces and changing strategies came in part from the military. and from the development of the counterinsurgency doctrine that general petraeus had overseen at fort leavenworth, and as importantly, the idea of the way the battlefield was developing, developed by general order you know, the second-in-command in iraq. at that time surfing -- since he was responsible for designing the operation and had as his mission built to make a rapid transition to the iraqi security forces under increasingly degrading conditions. i think that he very fundamentally saw what was needed in theater. he recommended that happened to coincide with some of the other things being developed in washington. >> host: i guess that sometimes i don't understand the complete timeline. people associate petraeus and the surge, and was a petraeus counterinsurgency manual and doctrine are coming to the top, ma or was it the search and petraeus was the right man for the job, which came first? >> g
that people are not quite ready for we are not here to hold their hand. we want a friendly environment and want them to consider new ideas but my job is to give them new ideas but challenge them to think in new ways. >> host: when you meet students can you now predict who will be successful and who want? >> no. not have first because they are pleasant most will be successful. that is the good news but it is almost impossible to predict. >> host: what are some of the downfalls of the first year of college? >> there are a lot of distractions. that is the biggest downfall of not paying attention what they need to do. not going to class, not getting assignments done, not studying. to make sure they have the best opportunities. >> host: what is the most common question? what they ought to be doing is in class on a regular basis engaging with the material if they are there if it is part of the dialogue failed no blood is on the test. >> host: has personal technology changed? >> yes. probably for the better but me before the words that we have to compete with these other students' attention t
in that environment it was a constant topic of conversation and then of course in the 60's as my grandfather became interested in his own fbi file because he too was followed and used the freedom of information act to get a hold of his file and the was of great interest because he was completely purged and documents were missing. i became fascinated in the whole period and that did lead me to become interested in the topic. >> in your talk about sabotage fought are you talking like they have factories or something? >> de savage tauscher area what have related to the shipping. one of the early mandates was to come and protect the british cargos and shipping so they did petrel the ports and some of the early complaints about the irregulars is that stevenson's bouygues or beating up nazis on the of dock with no due process. that would have been the area of sabotage. the germans. the original mandate was to come in and identify the nazi sympathizers and german organizations in this country. they vastly overstaffed that and did all kinds of spying on our politicians and meddling in our own political pro
to tell people we're going to cut the subsidies, but in this post arab spring environment, they are inclined to take things some people. and the country is $500 billion in foreign reserves, so it's hardly broke, but there are saudis financial institutions who estimate that the government spending will exceed government revenues by 2014. goes after the arab spring when king abdullah came home from back surgery, he passed out $130 billion to the society on top of a $180 billion annual budget. so more money for students stipends, more money to the religious establishment, more money to everyone, and created a minimum-wage for the first time for saudis. obviously, not for foreigners. and lastly, is the royal family itself, the third pillar of stability which i think is weakening. the biggest internal issue in the kingdom i think is the aged and confirmed leadership. this latest saudi state was declared in 1932 by abdullah al saud. and when he died in 1953, the crown has passed from one of his, first to his eldest son and then from brother to half-brother to half-brother. so ki

'44, a couple years after she died. but he was called before -- [inaudible] and he was asked if he had communist teachers, and he told them it was none of their business. [laughter] >> that's right. and he was a -- and more than i think being a sort of old left sort of new york fellow, he was a sort of new england yankee, you know sort of guy. not necessarily terribly liberal or, you know, more independent yankee. they don't talk to -- about him a lot. angela spoke about him very fondly, because she remembers that when she first came to the school, she came a week before the school opened to just sort of get oriented with the people who were, who she was staying with. and she just remembers him, you know, smiling at her and being very courtly and proper which i think was, you know, a good, you know, reminded her of the south. because it was just amazing to her when she went around t
the executive editor called me and said he thought i would do better in an unstable environment. he was sending me to washington. so that was the first. if you move on to women, this becomes a difficult and a different chapter because there were only 20% of the original group or women. you could not do the same thing of just measuring them. so our brave researchers went out and kept interviewing women right through, until we got a pattern of women, from 1978 to the present. now, get to -- this is what it really sort of looked like in the beginning. and it's pretty dismal. okay. this is judy woodruff, and she graduates from duke in 1968. and she says: my spring break i went to atlanta. i interviewed with all three affiliate news directors, two of them barely gave me the time of day. the third, an abc affiliate news director, this was the station that was doing one newscast over the weekend, he said, i could use a gopher, a news room secretary. you can answer the phone, pick up my mail. i worked for them for a year and a half. the last six months they hired me to do the 11:00 p.m. sunday night w
